Dexcom Rash!

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have been using Dexcom One sensor for about three months now and every time I break out in a terrible rash from the adhesive. I have tried everything to help: Underlays, Hydrocolloid Bandages, Compeed Bandages, Skin Tac and Overlays. However nothing seems to work. Some rashes are worse than others but I really don't want to go back to using libre freestyle as they are very unreliable.

Does anyone have any other suggestion/solutions that I have yet to try? Thank you.

    I have found the FreeStyle Libre 2 to be significantly more reliable than the original Libre. The constant updating and alarms can be useful too. No extra cost over the original Libre. No idea if it would be better from a rash point of view. It does not bother me though.
